A Non-Bookish Post For A Good Cause!

Heyo Bookaholics!

As you may be able to tell from the header, this is a different kind of post; very different to the usual book-related content I typically post.

The girl in the foreground of the header and the following image is my best friend in the whole wide world. We’ve been by each other’s side for over 15 years and counting.

A few months ago she delivered some sad news, her mother – the older woman in both images – was diagnosed with Ovarian cancer, a type of cancer that hasn’t had much research done on into its causes and definitive cures.

As a science student it has always been Chandelle’s mission to explore the causes, preventions, and cures of cancers, diseases and anything that could bring harm to anyone and anything; especially when her family could be impacted.

I have known her family for years and years, just as long as I have known Chandelle, and cancer not only affects the immediate family of a patient, rather their whole social circle. I can say it has affected me and my family, and I would do anything to make sure that no one else has to suffer through this.

Chandelle has been debating doing this for a while but she has started an ovarian cancer fundraiser in which she will be running a marathon to raise money for research for this deadly women’s cancer. The link for the fundraiser is below as well as can be accessed by clicking on the image.

I am so proud of her and the amount of money that she has raised, but more can be done and every dollar counts especially when it comes to medical research. Money matters. If we want a cure for a medical problem, the money raised really really matters.

Thank you so much if you have donated as it not only means so much to myself, but my best friend has been over the moon by the generosity people have expressed towards her and her family.
